Not Fade Away--Buddy Holly, covered by the Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello and the Dead, to name but a few...
GDTRFB--traditional

recommended listening

NFA

09-19-1970--monstrous, features great instrumental break that jams Darkness, Darkness and China Cat Sunflower themes
02-14-1970--ragged and raw but jammed...
05-08-1977--Dead turn this one into a lengthy quasi blues rock jam...sandwiched inside Saint Stephen...
04-15-1978--has some nice peak moments, Garcia employs a more distorted tone
12-31-1978--with John Cippolina
12-30-1990--with Branford Marsalis, opens the second set...dense version, sails on a nice groove, best latter day version without question...
03-24-1993--shorter version, but very tight and well played, top notch quality source is out there

GDTRFB

04-29-1971 fantastic version paired with one of the best Cold Rain and Snows you'll hear...
04-25-1983--listenable audience source will reveal Garcia going down the road feelin pretty damn good...
05-06-1981--a great version...
09-19-1990--jammed out, hornsby-licious...

NFA>GDTRFB>NFA

11-07-1971--the best one...jammed to the hilt...
10-31-1971--the highlight of Dick's Picks 2
11-19-1972--great version in a very country Dead sounding show
05-19-1974--my personal favorite...the jams are more "out there" than the '71 takes., nice segue into NFA, one moment you're getting whipped by the tail of the tiger, the next, NFA intro..awesome show too, great sounding source abounds for this show...

Was just listening to 4-29-71 today and thought briefly about that "just one show" for a second. Killer

Now I'm going to pull out that 4-15-78 and give it another whirl for the NFA recomendation.

Funny, when I was about 5 or 6, me and my siblings would pull out my mothers record collection (All 45's) and listen to mostly Elvis and Buddy Holly. My favorite record was "Oh Boy" / Flip side "Not Fade Away". Don't make 'em like that anymore!

Of course, we would always change speeds to 78 or 33 1/3 and laugh. For those of you who don't understand what I'm talking about, you missed out on the simple things in life.......Now you just download digitized years .........

I'm partial to the 71 versions when paired ( NFA>GDTRFB )

need to mention 2-11-70 with Allman Bros.

NFA - love what they were doing with that intro 79-80. Check out 6-20-80 Alaska

GDTRFB - love allmost every version of that tune they ever did. Just about never gets stale for me. Like the 74 stand alone versions a lot and also love it when they took it out of space - 7-17-88

Cliff would be correct in that assertion. But may I add 12-31-71? On the last solo break, second to last go 'round, jerry rips the hide of his strings, picking the theme at supersonic speed and then rocking out like nobody's business.

What was also great about his medley back then was guessing when, who, and how the reprise would be entered.

This shows rocks from start to finish, however Cliff finds all the New Years nonsense distracting...
